Ethanol

by John Linhardt

Since legislation of 2007, we have damaged our old cars. We get fewer “miles per gallon” than gasoline and since inception, the renewable standard in California alone cost residents an extra $13 billion at the pump.

One study in 2009 concluded that plowing fields to grow corn for Ethanol releases more carbon dioxide than Ethanol offsets. 40% of the U.S. corn crop goes into gas tanks so food prices rise and that directly affects beef and cattle prices.

Now, in some areas gas is below $2.00 per gallon, but where is the movement to end Ethanol additives? Our government, under the “Renewable Standard Alternative” act, wants to actually increase the Ethanol beyond 10% in our gasoline. Are they crazy? Boy, the corn farmers love this, and our food prices will go even higher. Time for a “Revolution Against Ethanol”.
